Father Time Lyrics – Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar – Father Time (feat. Sampha)

Lyrics

[Intro: Kendrick Lamar]
You really need some therapy
Real [email protected] don’t need no therapy, fu©k you talkin’ about?
Nah, nah, you sound stupid as fu©k
$hit, everybody stupid
Yeah, well, you need to talk to someone
Reach out to Echo

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
I come from a generation of home invasions
And I got daddy issues, that’s on me
Everything them four walls had taught me, made habits bury deep
That man knew a lot, but not enough to keep me past them streets
My life is a plot, twisted from directions that I can’t see
Daddy issues run across my head, told me, “fu©k a foul”
I’m teary-eyed, wanna throw my hands, I won’t think out loud
A foolish pride, if I lose again, won’t go in the house
I stayed outside, laughin’ with my friends, thеy don’t know my life
Daddy issues made mе learn losses, I don’t take those well
Momma said, “That boy is exhausted,” he said, “Go fu©k yourself
If he give up now, that’s gon’ cost him.” Life’s a bit©h
You could be a bit©h or step out the margin. I got up quick
I’m chargin’ baskets and falling backwards, tryna keep balance
Oh, this the part where mental stability meets talent
Oh, this the part, he breaks my humility just for practice
Tactics we learned together, sore losers forever, daddy issues
[Chorus: Sampha]
Early mornin’ wake ups (Ah) practicin’ on day-offs (Ah)
Tough love (Ah), bottled up, no chaser (Ah)
Neat no chaser (Ah), neat no chaser (Ah)
Neat no chaser (Ah), neat no chase
Early mornin’ wake ups (Ah), practicin’ on day-offs (Ah, day-offs)
Tough love (Ah), bottled up, no chaser (Ah)
Neat no chaser (Ah), neat no chaser (Ah)
Neat no chaser (Ah), neat no chaser

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar & Sampha]
I got daddy issues, that’s on me
Lookin’ for, “I love you,” rarely empathizin’ for my relief
A child that grew accustomed, jumping’ up when I scraped my knee
‘Cause if I cried about it, he’d surely tell me to not be weak
Daddy issues, hid my emotions, never expressed myself
Man should never show feelings, being sensitive never helped
His momma died, I asked him why he goin’ back to work so soon?
His first reply was “Son, that’s life, the bills got no silver spoon”
Daddy issues, fu©k everybody, go get your money, son
Protect yourself, trust nobody, only your momma’nem
This made relationships seem cloudy, never attached to none
So if you took some likings around me, I might reject the love
Daddy issues kept me competitive, that’s a fact, [email protected]
I don’t give a fu©k what’s the narrative, I am that [email protected]
When Kanye got back with Drake, I was slightly confused
Guess I’m not mature as I think, got some healin’ to do
Egotistic, zero-given fu©ks and to be specific (Ah)
Need assistance with the way I was brought up (Ah, ah)
What’s the difference when your heart is made of stone
And your mind is made of gold and your tongue has made of sword
But it may weaken your soul
My [email protected] ain’t got no daddy, grew up overcompensatin’
Learn $hit ‘bout bein’ a man and disguise it as bein’ a gangsta
I love my father for tellin’ me to take off the gloves
‘Cause everything he didn’t want was everything I was
And to my partners that figured it out without a father
I salute you, may your blessings be neutral to your toddlers
It’s crucial, they can’t stop us if we see the mistakes
‘Til then, let’s give the women a break, grown men with daddy issues
[Chorus: Sampha]
Early mornin’ wake ups (Ah), practicin’ on day-offs (Ah, day-offs)
Tough love (Ah), bottled up, no chaser (Ah)
Neat no chaser (Ah), neat no chaser (Ah)
Neat no chaser (Ah), neat no chaser
